Update Ė Unexpected trip to Club 33

So I just found out yesterday that Iím going to a Wine Maker Dinner at Club 33 this Sunday evening and John Lasseter will be there because itís his winery!

The same friend who got me in for lunch at the Club the day after my Birthday was able to get me into this dinner! Evidently Club 33 has these ďMember eventsĒ and the member can bring a certain number of guests. Well this event has a party maximum size of four, me and DP get to attend with our friends! When I found out about the possibility of going to the dinner I called DVC MS and waitlisted for that Sunday night, and amazingly enough the waitlist came through. Since we were already staying Friday and Saturday nights, adding a Sunday for an evening this special just seemed like a no brainer! However I didn't want to post anything about it until I was sure I was going, didn't want to jinx anything!

According to the Food & Wine schedule, John Lasseterís Winery is presenting tastings at the Festival Friday, Saturday and Sunday and his Wine Maker is doing bottle signings, so I guess after all that he gets to come to Club 33 and have dinner.

What a magical way to close out the weekend!

I love Guy but, a person that is as busy as he is has to be using fake tan. How else would he have a tan? When does he find time to spend in the sun?

It does look like a fake tan, sort of orangeish...

I always thought his tan was from all the time spent in his convertable driving the country I think he has white lines on his face from his sunglasses!

You are so lucky to be going to Club 33, I want to go one of these days!

Alison, That is super! I really want to hear all about it. Of course your going to post your experience.

We will be arriving at DL Sunday around noon. We are staying at the GC for four nights. Guess we will have to check our CA and look for John Lasseters Winery. Thanks for all the information.

So nothing went as planned today, we wanted to see the Guy Fieri Demo, but just didn't make it in time. And just to let you all know, don't think I eat like this all the time! But I do choose wisely, to quote Indiana Jones (the 3rd movie). Before we checked into the VGC we stopped at In-N-Out so we got our fast food burger fix before our gourmet plunge, plus all week I cooked "packaged food" like Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken and Zatarains Jambalaya. Don't think I didn't mix it up with extra veggies and stuff, but we're down home people normally, we just live it up on vacation or during F&W!

We did have a very nice dinner at Steakhouse 55 and I will quick post some pics because I need to go to bed so that I can get up for the Napa Rose Cooking School tomorrow. If I can muster up the gusto I'll even get up for magic mornings at the MK and ride SM, but that's pretty doubtful, I'm lucky to get up for the Cooking School as it is!





Ok so here's the bread, boy this was pretty darned yummy!



The Menu



We split everything on the meal, our first course was the rock shrimp, these were yummy tasty morsels delicately fried, but not at all tough, we scarfed them down.



Here's the glass of Chalone Chardonnay I had with the first two courses



The spinach and applewood bacon salad



The 7 onion soup, first the poured in parmesan crisps and chives,



Then the soup broth with the onions. I'll tell you this was AMAZING! The broth itself was to DIE for, and the onions were so sweet, it was just too good!



This was my half of the Rib Eye


The other half



Our Sides:



My plate, although this was a little bit overcooked, it was still quite good.



We got the first one on the list



Along with a glass of late harvest riesling



Next up the Cooking School at the Food & Wine Festival, it officially begins!

I like my steaks RED in the middle, it made me smile that you said yours were a little over done

I'm excited to read all about your F&W experience! Have a great time at the Cooking School tomorrow!!!

Alison!

I can't believe I was at the Keegan Gerhard Sweet Sunday last year and didn't know you! Aaarrrrggghhhhhh!

However, I am going to Taste this year with some friends. I will also be a scooter girl--how/where did you get your tray? How did you attach it to the scooter?

I was also wistful because my friends Dawn and Bob were at the Napa Rose cooking school last year in 2009 and enjoyed that menu very much. Unfortunately Dawn got the swine flu and passed away in November so it brought back memories because I saw a lot of them that weekend and reminded me that she would probably have been out here again.

Anyway--we will have to meet up at Taste!
